All of these states except Hawaii, Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma are south western IMO.

Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

Part of California may be included but only the southeastern part of the state where very few people live anyway. It would certainly not be right to consider the entire state of California "southwestern."

I would consider Southern California, Nevada, parts of Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico to be Southwestern. Texas is Southern, Oklahoma is Midwest, Hawaii would be part of the West and/or Pacific, and Colorado could be both West and Midwest IMHO.

I consider the whole states of Arizona,New Mexico, and Nevada to be part of the Southwest..I consider Abilene and points west of there to be parts of the Southwest in Texas.

Why not Oklahoma? It makes no sense to include Texas but not Oklahoma when Oklahoma is within range. It goes as far east and south as Texas.
